I've dined at Walter's Steakhouse on five or six occasions now. The bar area is relaxed, beer cold and perfect for pre-dinner or lunch drinks ! The food has been consistently excellent and the signature steak dish is a must. Tender and tasty meat dishes with a variety of entrees and other mains. Not an overcrowded menu but a menu with options. The wine list is superb. I can highly recommend Walter's!

both courses were excellent - great Oysters & the Steak for 2 also great.
I like the club like feelof the room - we did not use the Bar area but I like the ambience of that area

When i called the day before to ask for a more private sitting area for our business meeting, the gentlement on the phone was not very polite and kept mentioning they wont be busy so no need to mke a request in advance.
The service on the day was delightful.

Lovely place and great ambience. But I ordered my steak “medium” and it was completely raw except for the exterior. I ate as much as I could but in the end I just couldn’t. They did take it away and cook it a bit more (was still quite rare) and offered a free dessert which was great. Quite disappointed as I’d been here before and loved it.

Food was excellent, although the portion of the t-bone was much smaller than expected, when it was $118 for two people to share, it seemed undersized.

Food tasted good. Steaks and vegetable servings were light on. Don’t rate the deserts. Bar had great ambience...dining room was ok. Very expensive for size of the servings. Not a lot of GF options.

This is a restaurant for steak lovers. The porterhouse was cooked perfectly and the sides of cauliflower and fried German potatoes and the green salad were excellent .good wine list too. My second time and it was just as good as the first time. Best steak in Brisnane in my view.

Walter’s serves excellent steak. It’s rare to find steak that doesn’t require a sauce, but Walter’s has done it. The house porterhouse is excellent and generous in serving size. All other dishes are also great value and flavoursome. The creamed spinach and fries were great tasty recommendations. The mash potato was very filling. The cauliflower gratine was rich. The drinks were also good.

Our server was friendly and attentive from the start and answered any questions we had (and we asked questions about the restaurant itself as well as the food!).

All in all, Walter’s was a great spot for those looking for special occasion places or just great steaks!

Great food and good service in a cosy setting. The steaks are some of the best we have had - close to perfection. Good side dishes with sufficient quantity. An outstanding wine list albeit a bit expensive. Service was excellent - as one of the party was in a wheelchair, the waiter was very helpful in ensuring the wheelchair could be escorted through the restaurant and accommodated at the table. Could not fault anything - would highly recommend.

We had the dry aged rib for two people. The steak was beautifully cooked and served to us from the bone to our plates.
Definately one of the best steaks in Brisbane.

This is the third time I have dined at Walter's recently. After two excellent experiences this visit would be rated fair to moderate primarily on the level of service which was inattentive and rushed possibly due to insufficient wait staff. It was a let down. Food quality was very good as per previous meals

What a hidden gem! We’ve walked past this place for years, never really knowing much about it. For our anniversary, this place really hit all the high notes! The steak is like no steak I’ve ever eaten before, the wine list is admirable, and the key lime pie is to die for! What an experience. I can’t wait to visit again.

Oh, and be sure to start with Champagne and Oysters!

From the moment that we stepped in the door, we were treated in the most lovely manner.
Arthur, who was our server for the evening, had a great sense of humour. It is rare that you actually look forward to conversing with restaurant wait staff, but he was fabulous.
Food was spectacular, as always. Wine list is concise and well matched.
Overall, this restaurant surpasses my expectations each and every time we visit.
I really hope that they see this, to know that the effort they’ve put in on all fronts of the business are being appreciated by their customers.
Highly recommend.

The decor and atmosphere are fantastic and the food first rate. We struck very slow rather haphazard service however and were effectively ignored in favour of 2 much larger groups that arrived after us but were served well before us. The manager noticed the problem himself (I suspect there is more to the backstory we'll never know), and made a special effort to apologize and compensated us quite generously. That made a huge difference and so we'll certainly go back.

As close to a traditional New York steakhouse (think Wolfgang, Peter Luger) as we have seen in Australia. Very similar to Wolfgang’s - which we love. Steak, creamed spinach and chips. Pre dinner negroni excellent!

I’ve eaten at every steak restaurant in Brisbane and the 200grm, 30 day dry aged, 4 score marbled eye fillet is hands down the best steak I have eaten in my life. You could cut it with a butter knife and just melts in your mouth. Forget Moo Moo, Cha Cha Cha and Blackhide. Go straight to Walters!!

Upon arrival, greeted by gruff female bartender who couldn't crack a smile let alone make eye contact. Ordered entrees - prawn cocktail and duck liver parfait. These arrived within 60 seconds of ordering - no surprises some elements are pre-made, however these are obviously completely pre-prepared and not even allowed some time to warm to room temperature. We ordered porterhouse for two, medium. The steak ranged from rare to well-done. The waiter has no hesitation to pour the last of the 9-year old red wine we ordered into my glass (without me noticing) so I could enjoy all that sediment in my last mouthful - wonderful final note for an unimpressive dining experience. Nice spot though.
